"Everyone involved with TNA Impact Wrestling is delighted to be returning to screens in South-East Asia," said TNA President Dixie Carter. "Partnering with such a prestigious network as ASN is another huge milestone, as we celebrate 10 years of success. I get lots of Tweets and emails from our fans in Hong Kong, and all around South-East Asia, so I'm delighted they can now watch TNA every week exclusively on ASN Ringside – starting with our 10th anniversary event."
